I have been into reloading for about 12 years and like to reload for my hunting hobbies. I like to go varmint hunting and I got my dad interested also. However, he does not have a popular varmint caliber. He just recently bought a .270 win. So I went to work. I load Barnes bullets if at all possible. The hard part was finding a varmint bullet in .270 caliber. I found the bullet, Barnes MPG (multi purpose green) frangible bullet just like the varmint grenade. Basically the same bullet just for different callibers. Why is this? Also, this bullet is 85gr and i have it traveling about 3600fps. Is this rediculous? I also thought about loading the same bullet in my .270 Weatherby Mag which would yield about 3920fps. The .220 swift can achieve this speed but with 36-50gr bullets, the 22-250 does the same. Is it unnecessary for me to do this? My reason for trying out these is for extreme long distance varmint hunting. I feel that having the heavier bullet, the velocity at longer distance would remain more constant because of momentum and also to have the "knock-down" when it gets there. The 85gr bullets in the .270 have proved extremely accurate. I shot a coyote at 200yds on the run and rolled him up. Any ideas or comments?
